World's Oldest and Newest Cardinal

Loris Card. Capovilla.

Born in 1915.  

Sta proprio bene di rosso.

A living relic of history.

Gaudet Mater Ecclesia!

Would love to meet him.

He was the personal secretary to Cardinal Roncalli, later Pope John XXIII.  

Created cardinal of the Roman Church at age 98.

"Axios!" (Greek ἄξιος, "[He is] worthy!")
